It’s amazing every time we consider this simple assertion: invasive plants are considered a greater threat to our national parks than wildfires, overcrowding, pollution, vandalism, oil drilling, and off-road vehicles. Habitat restoration, thus, is an important part of the Great Turning to which we have all bent our efforts.
Join us at our seasonal service day at Green Gulch Zen Center in Marin County, where removing invasive plants is just one of the many activities that you can choose to care for mother Earth. Audrey Fusco, assistant site manager, leads with grace and skill as we work side by side with members of her Watershed Stewardship team.
